||A review of the materials and allergens in protective gloves
||Sep. 2009, Vol.61, No.3, p.129-137. 46 ref.
||Substances reported in literature as causing protective glove allergy are presented and for each, the strength of evidence is evaluated. Allergens that have caused both delayed hypersensitivity and contact urticaria are considered for rubber, plastic, leather and textile gloves. The current guidelines regarding glove manufacture are described. A list of materials confirmed by the industry to be used in glove production is presented together with a suggested series for the patch testing of patients with delayed type hypersensitivity and contact urticaria from glove use.
